MILWAUKEE -- Following a blowout loss to the Bucks on Tuesday in a game during which J. Matt Moore Jersey .R. Smith allowed a wide-open dunk because he was busy greeting a Milwaukee player on the sidelines while the ball was in play, the Cleveland Cavaliers guard pleaded ignorance when asked about the mistake.I wasnt even paying attention, Smith said of his hug with Jason Terry with 2:57 remaining in the second quarter that left Tony Snell with an uncontested path to the basket. I dont even remember that.The bucket gave the Bucks a 53-50 lead en route to their eventual 118-101 victory, snapping a four-game win streak for the now 13-3 Cavs.The blunder certainly wasnt the main reason Cleveland lost -- it can blame its season-high 20 turnovers leading to 22 Milwaukee points and the 68 points in the paint it gave up -- yet Smith maintained his charade of selective amnesia.What play are you talking about? Smith said when a reporter continued to ask him about the clip that had gone viral even before the game ended.When the reporter described the play in detail, Smith replied, I didnt even know I was in the game. My bad.During the interview, Smith wore a ski mask-style cover over his face, only making his answers more bizarre.Its my alter ego, Smith said. Its a gift from Ohio State, so I figure why not?Smith got the hood during the Cavs trip to the Michigan-Ohio State football game over the weekend.He was then asked if his alter ego had a name.Yeah, he said.What is it?I cant tell you, Smith said, as LeBron James chuckled while dressing at the locker next to him, causing Smith to laugh, as well.Cavs coach Tyronn Lue was in a far less cheery mood after what was, unmistakably, his teams worst loss of the season.I just didnt like that we didnt match their physicality, Lue said after Cleveland saw an early 14-point lead turn into a double-digit defeat. I thought they were physical from 1 through 5. They were physical, they played harder than we did and thats what happens. You give up 68 points in the paint, you dont get back in transition and this team scored 118 points with only seven 3s. So, 68 points in the paint -- we told them we had to protect the paint tonight, and we just didnt do it.Things got so bad for the Cavs in the third quarter that Lue employed one of his boldest moves since becoming coach at midseason last year: He benched his entire lineup en masse to bring in five reserve players as substitutes.I just wanted to do it, Lue said of taking out Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson, Iman Shumpert and James and replacing them with Chris Andersen, DeAndre Liggins, Mike Dunleavy, Jordan McRae and James Jones.Pressed for his reasoning, Lue replied, I just didnt like how we played, how we were playing.Cleveland trailed by 11 when Lue made the move with 3:49 remaining in the third. By the end of the period, the Bucks lead had ballooned to 18.Hes our coach, and if he felt like we werent giving the effort we needed to do, then he has the right to do that, James said. Our guys that came in, they played as well as they could, for sure.Lue went back to his starters with 10:56 left in the fourth and Cleveland down 15, but the coach pulled them back out for good with 6:03 remaining, when the Bucks pushed their cushion up to 22.Asked whether he saw any change in his top unit after the lineup swap occurred, Lue scoffed, Same results. ... You saw it.While Love did not agree with a reporter suggesting Lue was sending a message with the move, the team accepted it, no matter Lues motivation.Probably if I was a coach, I probably would have done the same thing, Irving said. Even though the point disparity wasnt as big in the point of the game, but, I mean, we needed it. They were getting some easy looks, and you obviously know the coaches around the league -- probably one coach, in [Gregg] Popovich, [would] do it with his starting five and take them out just to prove a point.I think that going forward, we dont want it to happen again and well do our best to not make it happen again. So as leaders of the team -- myself, LeBron, Kevin -- in picking up the guys, we got to lead this charge; and going forward, well be better.James was ready to leave the loss in Milwaukee and focus on the back-to-back against the?LA Clippers?and Chicago Bulls awaiting the Cavs to finish the week.Move on, James said, as he pretended to crumple up a piece of paper and throw it in the trash. Move on, move on.[In an] 82-game season, youre going to have one or two of these. I was looking at the scores after the game, and I see San Antonio is losing at home to Orlando right now. I know Pop is not happy about that. You just crumple it up and move on to the next. Brad Boxberger Rays Jersey . It might not have mattered.

GIRONA, Spain -- Major winner Y.E. Yang and former Ryder Cup player Edoardo Molinari were among the 30 golfers to earn a European Tour card for the 2017 season on Thursday following the final round of Q School.On one of the most nerve-racking days on the European golfing calendar, the high-profile names in the 156-player field all came through safely after six rounds at PGA Catalunya just outside Barcelona.Yang was one of them. The South Koreans seven-year exemption for winning the 2009 U.S. PGA Championship expired this year, meaning he had to go to qualifying school after a disappointing season on the main tour when he had just two top-20 finishes.However, Yang handled the pressure well, playing consistent golf all week and his 1-under 71 on Thursday saw him finish on 8-under 420, in a tie for 11th.Molinari, who played on Europes triumphant 2010 Ryder Cup team at Celtic Manor with younger brother Francesco, qualified for the second straight year in a tie for second on 12 under.Englishmen Tom Lewis (8 under) and Eddie Pepperell (10 under) were other well-known players to get through the final stage. At 47, Ricardo Gonzalez of Argentina became the oldest Q School graduate after finishing in a tie for second.Nathan Kimsey of England won the finnal stage of Q School by a shot after finishing on 13 under. Wade Davis Rays Jersey. Kimsey also had to come through the first and second stages of Q School, meaning he had to play 252 holes to get his first card.The last two days have been up there in terms of how nervous Ive ever been on a golf course up until this point, Kimsey said, so to come through both of them under par for those two rounds is so pleasing.There was a tension-filled end to the day for Englishmen Jamie Rutherford and Gary King, Jaco Ahlers of South Africa, Niclas Johansson of Sweden and Espen Kofstad of Norway, who were all tied for 25th place -- the cut-off mark for qualifying -- as Richard McEvoy made his way down the 18th. A birdie for McEvoy would have deprived the quintet of European Tour privileges and forced them to compete next year on the second-tier Challenge Tour, where the prize money is much less.McEvoy made par and all six got their cards.It is probably the most stressful day I have had on a golf course, watching Tom (Lewis) and Richie (McEvoy), Pepperell said after watching his compatriots qualify. It is something I do not want to do again.

SEATTLE -- Jake (The Juggernaut) Ellenberger has clearly won the pre-fight war of words. Markus Naslund Canucks Jersey Authentic . But Canadian welterweight Rory (Ares) MacDonald is confident he will dominate when it counts -- Saturday night in the cage. The charismatic Ellenberger has had a field day with the stone-faced MacDonald, using social media and chats with reporters to poke fun at his opponent. "He has been invented by the media and sold to the fans like a new Justin Bieber song," Ellenberger offered in the buildup to their televised UFC fight at the KeyArena. "This is not a Tears For Fears lookalike contest," Ellenberger told a media conference call. "Rory: Welcome to "Chez Ellenberger". Tonights special is CANVAS SANDWICHES served FACE DOWN. Bon appetit," read one memorable Ellenberger tweet. "Rory MacDonald: somebody whos been broken more times than the weekend curfew at the dorms at Vassar," read another tweet. "McDummy. Bad News: Fighting Me. Good News: Handicapped Parking," read another. "Which round is Rory getting melted? .YouChoose .UFConFox8," Ellenberger said, upping the ante. That got MacDonalds attention, promoting him to fire back on Twitter: "4some1 with such a week jaw u sure use it alot 2 talk shit when ur done buildin ur self up ill b there 2send u back 2reality." "McDummy," Ellenberger tweeted back. "Unless you are using a unit of time as an adjective, the word is "weak", not "week", Stupid." The fact MacDonald broke down and responded was exactly the reaction Ellenberger was after. "Every quick decision, especially in social media, is based emotionally," said Ellenberger. "I think its funny, I do it for laughs. And he reacted the way I assumed he would. For me, I dont take anything personally. Anybody can say anything about me. And what they think about me, I could care less." MacDonald, a native of Kelowna., B.C., who now trains out of Montreal, says he has no regrets about jumping into the fray. "Its fun to give your opinion back. It gets people excited for the fight." Well see Saturday night who has the last laugh. Ellenberger is likely to want to get up close and personal with the Canadian, to negate MacDonalds reach and to bring his own power and wrestling skills to bear. The taller MacDonald is good at all aspects of the game, able to control distance, and is icy cold in the cage. The fight has implications in the 170-pound division currently ruled by Georges St-Pierre, who shares a gym with MacDonald in Montreal. MacDonald is currently ranked third among welterweights with Ellenberger fourth. GSP meets the No. 1 contender, Johny Hendricks, in November. And No. 2 Carlos Condit faces No. 7 Martin Kampman on Aug. 28. By the end of the year, the pecking order among 170-pounders should be clearer. MacDonald, who turned 24 on Monday, is 5-1 in the UFC and has won four straight. His last outing was also in Seattle, a dominant win over former lightweight and welterweight champion B.J. Penn. Prior to that, he had his way with Che Mills, Mike Pyle and Nate Diaz. The young Canadian is seen as one of the new breed of MMA fighters. He took up the hybrid sport at 14 rather than coming to it from wrestling or kick-boxing. He had his first pro fight at 16, with his parents having to give their approval to do so. Even then, only a few athletic commissions would sanction the youngster. Ellenberger (29-6) is a former collegiate wrestler and U.S. marine who is 8-2 in the UFC. The 28-year-old has real power in his hands and gets better each fight. "If Im on, I can beat anyone in the world," he said Wednesday after a public workout. "Everybody gives this kid too much respect," Ellenberger said of MacDonald. "Hes got to fight me. Thats the equation. Hes got to deal with what Ive got to bring. I have new things I cant wait to show." He has already shown a fine ability to sell a fight, helped in part by MacDonalds serious demeanour. Around fight time, the Canadian is in full-on funeral mode. Ellenberger was all smiles Wednesday, explaining that he had upped his Twitter game for this fight just to have some fun and entertain the fans. The strategy seems to be working. The co-main event of MacDonald-Ellenberger has been overshadowing the main event in which local favourite Demetrious (Mighty Mouse) Johnson defends his flyweight (125-pound) title against John Moraga. Still Ellenberger acknowledges talk is cheap. "At the end of the day, it doesnt matter if you say something or not," he said. "Either way Im focused on the fight." And MacDonald knows the talk will be over this weekend, saying: "Well see Saturday night." Todd Bertuzzi Canucks Jersey .

Dont know what it was, dont know what you want to call it.Smith has had two concussions in his football career, one in college with Utah and one while playing for the?San Francisco 49ers.Meanwhile, Chiefs running back?Jamaal Charles had exploratory surgery Wednesday on his right knee by Dr. James Andrews as the Chiefs try to determine why there is lingering pain from reconstructive surgery last season.?The four-time Pro Bowler was placed on injured reserve, meaning hell miss at least eight weeks.Coach Andy Reid said Smith is still in what he called the return to play phase of the concussion protocol, even though tests have found that Smith doesnt have a concussion.Its just in the best interests of all that we allow him to go through this, Reid said.

This was a decision we came to together, certainly.I love playing football. I love my teammates. I love everything about it. The last thing I want to do [and] I think anybody wanted to see was to come back too soon and to see something happen again. Would that have happened? Maybe, maybe not. You just dont know.

But after examining him each time, the Chiefs determined he didnt have a concussion.Foles was 16-of-22 for 223 yards and two touchdowns in the Chiefs 30-14 victory. It was his first game action in the regular season since signing with the Chiefs in August.In addition to Charles, the Chiefs are also likely to be without backup running back?Spencer Ware?for Sundays game, as he has not yet passed the leagues concussion protocol.The Associated Press contributed to this report.

The second was more damaging as it gave Britain a 5-3 lead and Inglot served out the third set with two consecutive aces.Zimonjics partner, Krajinovic, playing his first Davis Cup doubles, then dropped his serve at the start of the fourth and the Britons never let the advantage slip.Its a pity, said Krajinovic, who played through an injured wrist and a viral infection. I was very tight in the first set but then I relaxed.The Drina March, a popular Serbian World War I marching tune, was played between every game and the Serbs had a break point with Inglot serving for the match.But the Britons saved it, then the Serbs saved one match point when Krajinovic played a great lob. The Britons then got to replay a point because a fan in the stands shouted Out on Inglots serve, and he hit two service winners to clinch the match.I just focused on my thing, Inglot said after his first doubles win in Davis Cup.Serbia captain Bogdan Obradovic said Zimonjic was playing on an ankle injury, and he was resting the experienced Tipsarevic for the reverse singles.The idea was to keep him fresh for tomorrow, Obradovic said.The second singles could not be played on the opening day because of rain and was postponed until Saturday, when it also began an hour later than scheduled.But the weather cleared and Lajovic put Serbia back in the tie. He won 10 straight points in breaking Ward at love and holding at love for a decisive 3-1 lead in the third set.In the opening singles, Edmund beat Tipsarevic 6-3, 6-4, 6-0 on Friday.Serbia is without top-ranked Novak Djokovic, while Britain is missing No. 2 Andy Murray.The younger Murray, however, came to Belgrade to support the team from the sidelines, while Djokovic stayed away.Lajovic broke serve in the opening game and that set the tone for the match.A tough start, he didnt do much wrong, Ward said. Its one of the heaviest clay courts Ive ever played on, it doesnt suit my game at all.Its not my ideal surface in slow and heavy conditions. He was just too good today.Lajovic agreed about the condition of the clay court after heavy rains overnight.As soon as you put pressure on your foot, it falls apart, Lajovic said.I was a a little under pressure as we were down 1-0, but he was a little less comfortable. I played a good tactical match.

Gayle and Jayawardena, two of the most exciting players in Twenty20 history, will show off their talents in front of the Sky Sports cameras at the 1st Central County Ground in Hove.West Indies opener Gayle had a short stint with the county last summer and produced one of the most memorable innings of the season when he smashed an unbeaten 151 off 62 balls against Kent, a game Somerset went on to lose by three runs chasing 228. Jayawardena, who previously played for Sussex, was employed by England as a batting consultant during the World Twenty20 and also acted as part of Sky Sports coverage of the Indian Premier League.Somerset lost their opening T20 Blast game of the season on May 20, with Kent again coming out on top in a high-scoring affair in Canterbury.But they have since produced a superb lower-order batting display to beat Surrey in the Specsavers County Championship and T20 captain Jim Allenby hopes they can continue that momentum on Wednesday. Chris Gayle will be back in Somerset colours on Wednesday After our exciting victory over Surrey we are looking forward to some more wins and singing the Blackbird song, which is why we play cricket, Alleenby told Somersets website. Martin St. Louis Rangers Jersey Authentic. Its very exciting to get back into the T20 Blast after a couple of weeks in the County Championship. This has given us time to reflect on what we did well and maybe not so well at Canterbury in our first game.We batted well at Kent but were maybe 20 runs light. They came out all guns blazing and I think that is the modern way in T20 now, so there are going to be some big scores, which is fantastic because its a great game to watch and to play.  We cant wait to have Mahela and Chris joining us this week and its really exciting to have these guys joining a squad which is already a strong group of players.

The nations richest athletic departments -- those in the Power Five conferences -- pulled in a record $6 billion last year, nearly $4 billion more than all other schools combined, according to an Outside the Lines analysis of NCAA data. Derek Jeter Jersey . The gulf between college sports haves and have-nots has never been greater.Powered by multimillion-dollar media rights contracts and rising ticket-sales revenue, the richest schools have spent aggressively: on private jets, on campus perks like barber shops and bowling alleys, on biometric gadgets for athletes, and on five-star hotel stays during travel. Theyve also hired a plethora of athletic department support staffers who earn six-figure salaries and sometimes have obscure job titles such as horticulturalist and museum curator.To keep up, smaller conference schools -- dubbed the Group of Five -- are spending, too, but from different sources: Those schools have increasingly shifted hundreds of millions of dollars from students, taxpayers and other university programs into their athletic programs to do so, the analysis shows.The Outside the Lines analysis examined eight years of revenue and expense data from all Division I/Football Bowl Subdivision schools. On average, Power Five and Group of Five schools each saw about 50 percent increases in net revenue during the eight-year period. But half of the revenue for public school athletic departments in the Group of Five came from student fees, university subsidies and state or local governments, even in the face shrinking state budgets. For Power Five schools -- those in the SEC, Big 10, ACC, Big 12 and Pac-12 -- subsidized sources made up just 5 percent of their budgets.Richard Vedder, director of the Center for College Affordability and Productivity in Washington, D.C., said students often have no idea how much of their student fees bill goes toward sports: They are aghast, My God, I only went to two football games when I was in college. They cost me $500 apiece.Other findings from the analysis:Texas A&M reported about $193 million revenue, the most of any Division I school, in 2014-15. The Aggies vaulted to the top spot because of donations received for the renovation and expansion of Kyle Field.The University of Texas had the highest ticket sales revenue, at $63.3 million, followed closely by Ohio State at $63.1 million, in 2014-15.Georgia and Alabama each spent $1.3 million on football recruiting in 2014-15, putting them at the top among Division I schools.?Ohio State spent the most on coaching salaries -- a total of $28 million -- in 2014-15.NCAA officials often argue that only two dozen or so of the 350 Division I athletic departments are truly self-sustaining, meaning revenues exceed or break even with expenses. But in recent years, college presidents and athletic directors have acknowledged that many athletic departments dont show a profit or any excess carryover because there is no reason for them not to spend the money they earn. A few athletic departments do divert some revenue to their respective university budgets, but a Chronicle for Higher Education analysis this year found that only 10 athletic departments gave enough money back between 2011 and 2014 to offset what they had received in subsidies. Six of the 10 had received no subsidies.An NCAA spokeswoman declined to comment, saying that financial decisions are made at the campus level.The Outside the Lines analysis shows that the disparity between the richest and poorest schools has never been greater. In 2008, the gap between the average overall revenue of schools in todays Power Five conferences and those in the Group of Five was about $43 million. In 2015, it was $65 million. For public schools, if subsidies are subtracted from that revenue, the gap gets even wider, from an average $53 million in 2008 to $83 million in 2015.The Group of Five schools -- whose combined revenue of $2 billion is just a third of their elite peers -- have tried keep up with the Power Five schools by adding staff and increasing salaries to lure the best administrators and coaches, by building multimillion-dollar stadiums and arenas, and by giving athletes more money to cover tuition and living expenses.The University of Connecticut is one example. Although its $72 million in operating revenue in 2015 put it higher than a number of Power Five programs, the American Athletic Conference school with its top-ranked mens and womens basketball teams pulled $28 million of that revenue from student fees and university subsidies -- an amount that has more than doubled since 2008. Since then, revenue from ticket sales and contributions has decreased, according to data UCONN reported to the NCAA. Officials from the UCONN athletic department did not respond to a request for someone to be interviewed for this story.This fall, returning UCONN students are facing a 6.7 percent tuition increase, part of a plan university regents approved last year to raise tuition by 31 percent over the next four years to help close a $40.2 million budget deficit.Andrew Zimbalist, an economist at Smith College and a sports-business expert, is among many academics who say trying to keep up isnt worth it.Its violating the spirit of what college athletics are supposed to be, and financially its very destructive, he said. You can take $20-to-$30 million and give scholarships to poor minority kids who show academic promise in the inner city. That would show a greater impact on society and diversity and academic quality of the student body. I dont think anybody would object to the athletic enterprise if they had a deficit similar to the deficit in the theater department or the classics department.Not all schools are chasing the Power Five dream, though: This past spring, the University of Idaho became the first school to leave the Football Bowl Subdivision, citing finances as one of the driving factors. The University System of Georgia Board of Regents recently enacted a rule that limits how much money from student fees and tuition can be spent on athletics, and last year the Virginia Legislature made a similar move.Similar efforts have been met with significant resistance, though. The University of Alabama-Birmingham announced in fall 2014 that it would eliminate football because officials said it cost too much to subsidize, but the decision was met with such fierce opposition that the school reinstated it this year and plans to start conference play in fall 2017.?It is also building a new $22 million football practice facility, although the school has reported that donations are covering almost all of that cost.Arkansas State, which tallied $29 million in total revenue in 2015, with 48 percent coming from student fees, university support and state funding, has added facilities, coaching staff and amenities, but athletic director Terry Mohajir said its not because the school is trying to keep up with its Power Five neighbors.Were just trying to be the best that we can possibly be, said Mohajir, whose school was a contender to be added to the Big 12. Every day, were trying to increase everything we have.Arkansas State has had to replace its head football coach four times since 2011, having lost three to higher-paying head coaching jobs at larger programs.The Group of Five are trying to put ourselves as much as we can on a level playing field, Mohajir said. Unlike the Power Five schools who receive multimillions annually in TV rights, we dont start out with a $30 million check in our pocket without having to raise one dollar. Thats a huge bonus ... We dont have that type of revenue, and we have to raise the money or the universities have to subsidize it.Mohajir said the state of Arkansas caps how much money the university can give athletics, and hes not interested in increasing student fees, so the program has been working hard to earn private money through donations, licensing, royalties and ticket sales. The school has seen ticket sales increase by almost 40 percent since 2008, and contributions topped more than $5 million in 2014-15. Mohajir defends the programs reliance on university and student fee support, because he said athletics brings students and extra tuition money to campus and makes the school more widely known outside Arkansas.We basically are the marketing arm of the university, he said. We recruit students to everybodys college. We recruit students to be in the business school and fine arts ... The ancillary revenue that you receive for a strong athletic program far outweighs the money the university spends - academic pride, student recruitment, recruiting the best talent and people in your state, and economic development in the community.Zimbalist said that is perhaps true for a handful of schools -- some universities have seen a spike in enrollment after a team reaches the Final Four or achieves some other athletic milestone or major upset - but Zimbalist said there is no evidence across the board that a strong athletic program consistently attracts more high school students and increases the number of applicants.Vedder, with the Center for College Affordability and Productivity, said there has been some correlation in Division I schools between athletic success and academic excellence, but it comes at a great cost. If you took the $25 million in subsidies you gave for athletics and in turn used that money to increase instructional spending, you can get the same sort of instructional gains, he said.Vedder said there are also plenty of schools that have poured money into achieving athletic success that are still ranked low academically. He cited Boise State, which ranked 612 out of 660 schools in Forbes magazines Americas Top Colleges rankings, which Vedder and his colleagues compiled. Since 2008, Boise State increased its student fee and direct university support for athletics by a third to about $10 million, and its football team has finished in the top 25 six times. It was among those programs lobbying to get picked up by the Big 12.According to the Outside the Lines analysis, among 13 public schools reported last month to have been vying to get into the Big 12, about 42 percent of their revenue on average came from student fees and outside subsidies in 2014-15. On average since 2008, theyve spent 46 percent more on athletes tuition and expenses, and 57 percent more on coaching salaries.One of those schools, the University of Houston, spent $26 million to support athletics in 2014-15, accounting for nearly 60 percent of the athletic departments revenue. The Houston Chronicle, citing an email it received from an open records request, noted that UH chancellor Renu Khator wrote a professor in 2014 that if UH does not get into a major conference, it will be difficult for us to sustain what the school is spending on sports. The desire to make it into a Power Five conference is driven by many factors, but TV rights revenue is a major one. Last year, TV partners, including ESPN, paid the Power Five conferences nearly $1.4 billion. This summer, the Big 10 finalized a media rights deal with Fox, ESPN and CBS that will earn it on average about $440 million annually for six years.Knight Commission executive director Amy Perko said schools need to be more transparent about their true costs. She said her commission has discussed several cost-cutting ideas, including shortening seasons or reducing games, putting a cap on the number of non-coaching personnel, limiting the number of sports required in Division I, and letting non-football sports compete with schools that are more aligned geographically to reduce travel time, scheduling and financial burdens.Arkansas States Mohajir said he supports the idea of realigning the Group of Five conferences to be more geographically matched which would cut down on team travel costs, generate more regional rivalries and increase ticket sales.But Zimbalist said the changes need to be more drastic and are likely to draw increased intervention by state governments and even Congress, where legislators have expressed interest in findings ways to rein in college sports spending.The system is being challenged, and its very much up in the air, Zimbalist said. Theres growing recognition that the current business model is not working out. Greg Bird Yankees Jersey . The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., has nothing but good things to say about former U.S. marine Liz (Girlrilla) Carmouche ahead of their co-main event Wednesday on the UFCs "Fight for the Troops" televised card in Fort Campbell, Ky. Lou Gehrig Jersey . He was followed closely by David Clarkson, donning red, seconds later. Clarksons actions one night earlier, leaping off the bench in defence of Kessel during a pre-season game against the Buffalo Sabres, will cost him the first 10 games of the regular season. http://www.yankeesauthorityshop.com/Starlin-Castro-Jersey/ . Louis Rams wide receiver Stedman Bailey last Sunday. The fine is the fourth this season for Goldson. He was fined $30,000 for a hit on the New York Jets Jeff Cumberland in Week 1. At 6-17 this season, the Minnesota Timberwolves are reeling.Their latest bump in the road came via a 27-point loss Friday to Detroit. Tom Thibodeaus team, lined with young and inexperienced players, could use a few wins to build a bit of confidence.Hosting the team with the NBAs best record may not be the ideal way to do that.On Sunday, Minnesota welcomes the Golden State Warriors, who even despite a loss Saturday to Memphis still boasts a 20-4 mark.Things seemingly hit a low point in Minneapolis following Fridays blowout. After the Wolves 117-90 loss, players had some pretty strong words about their latest performance.We didnt play with heart, point guard Ricky Rubio told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. It was a two-point game and suddenly it was a 25-point game. And it seems like we didnt care.Guard Zach LaVine echoed Rubios sentiment following Minnesotas 17th loss.We got blown out at home, and its unacceptable, LaVine told the Star Tribune. Weve got to play as a team. We have to come out and give it all weve got. Because we have to get out of this hole. This is our job. Our passion. Its about us.Golden State reeled off four straight wins before suffering a 110-89 loss Saturday to the Memphis Grizzlies. That loss was only the fourth of the year -- and the third by at least 20 points -- for the reigning Western Conference champion. Steve Kerrs team has still looked like the team to beat in the NBA through the first few months of the 2016-17 season. Austin Romine Jersey. In Saturdays loss, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were each 4-for-14 from the floor. Kevin Durant led the Warriors with 21 points, while Curry was held to 17 points -- including an uncharacteristic 3-for-11 from 3-point range.I think (Currys) set the bar so high the last couple years, Warriors coach Steve Kerr told the San Jose Mercury News after Saturdays loss. Hes got high standards. Hell find his stroke.Defense has been one of the weakest parts of Minnesotas game this year. The young Timberwolves rank near the bottom of the league in many defensive categories, including points against and opponent field goal percentage. They havent held an opponent to fewer than 100 points in eight straight games.That doesnt necessarily bode well for Minnesota on Sunday, considering Golden State is the highest-scoring team in the NBA. However, Saturdays 89-point performance was the lowest output of the year for the Warriors.Tonight was just about our overall effort, Kerr told the Mercury News on Saturday. It didnt matter who was doing what offensively.Its the second meeting of the year between the Timberwolves and Warriors. Golden State won at home against Minnesota 115-102 on Nov. 26 despite forward Draymond Green not playing because of an ankle injury. Curry scored 34 points in that one.

We got to practice and travel tomorrow. Have dinner in New York City, and you play the next day. How much can I do?Calipari said Sunday he knows what to expect from a Tom Izzo-coached team.Go play a team that you know is going to play hard, you know is going to rebound, you know is going to fly, Calipari said. If you dont get back on defense, theyre going to shoot layups. You know they get back. They rebound like crazy, thats their hallmark. They rebound, they bang.Tom does a great job with his team and puts them in great positions like always and it will be a war, Calipari said. Its going to be a tough game for us. We may start four freshmen, thats a tough place to start four freshmen walking into Madison Square Garden in that level of a game.Izzos club, like Kentucky, is depending heavily on freshmen. Miles Bridges scored 21 points in the Arizona loss and was the only player to reach double figures in scoring. Nick Ward added nine points, Josh Langford scored five and Cassius Winston had three assists but failed to score.For Kentucky, sophomore Isaiah Briscoe is the leading scorer through two games at 19.0 points per game, including a career-best 21 points Sunday against Canisius.

In 1999, Michigan State kept Kentucky from defending its national title with a 73-66 win. In 1957, Michigan State upset third-ranked Kentucky 80-68.Kentuckys lone NCAA Tournament win over Michigan State was a big one. The Wildcats topped the Spartans 52-49 en route to the 1978 NCAA Tournament championship.Overall, Kentucky and Michigan State have faced off 23 times with 12 wins for the Wildcats and 11 for the Spartans. The last meeting was in this same Champions Classic event, a 78-74 win by Michigan State in a battle of No. 1 vs. No. 2 on Nov. 12, 2013. Kentucky would go on to reach the national championship game, losing to Connecticut. Yovani Gallardo Jersey .

The Browns coaching search remains incomplete.Sky Sports pundit Terry Gibson believes Barcelona need to freshen up their squad in the summer to avoid a similar end-of-season burn-out next year. Luis Enriques side were knocked out of the Champions League by Atletico Madrid in April before going on a run of defeats in the league that allowed Atletico and Real Madrid back into contention in the La Liga title race.Arda Turan and Aleix Vidal were the high-profile new faces in the Barcelona squad when the clubs transfer ban was lifted at the turn of the year, but Gibson thinks that Enrique needs more youth to give the squad an edge for next season. Im not sure if Luis Enriques trying to make a point to the hierarchy at the club - but he doesnt have too much faith in too many of the squad players, so hes constantly relied on the same players time and time again, Gibson told the La Liga Weekly podcast.Its an advantage to play a consistent team, which hes been able to do in the last few weeks because of not being in the Champions League. But next season if you looked at those two games against Arsenal, those two games against Atletico Madrid, thats when he could have done with some extra players. Luis Enrique has relied on a small group of starting players this season. I think its no secret that their best players are in their late 20s and early 30s. Neymar is 23, theres Rafinha and Sergi Roberto who he seems to trust, but Marc Bartras gone off to scowl, Thomas Vermaelen hasnt contributed enough, Adriano hasnt - those types need to be better and younger probably.I wonder how much they can raise from just selling the players who are on the fringes of the squad. On the face of it I was excited when they signed Arda Turan, but looking at it now - hes 29 and they probably needed a similar player but younger. Aleix Vidal is a little bit of a mystery. La Liga Weekly - 16th May This isnt a criticism of the age of the players who are serving them so well at the moment, but are they capable of playing the level that they need to at Barcelona for 60 games a season?One player who Gibson has been particularly impressed by is Barcelona striker Luis Suarez, who scored a hat-trick against Granada on the final day of the season to secure the title and claim the Pichichi with 40 league goals in the season. Watch the best of Barcelonas potent strike force: Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar Luis Suarez up-front sometimes looks like an ugly duckling in the Barcelona team, Gibson said. Zach Britton Jersey. Although his touch is good and hes a great player, he is different and you can tell he hasnt been brought up through the same system.If ever a player was responsible at crunch time of the season in dragging his team by the scruff of the neck, lifting them across the finishing line, it was him. He has added so much to the team. He allows Messi to drift away. We see a different Messi now, whos not obsessed with the goals that he scores. If ever a player was responsible at crunch time of the season in dragging his team by the scruff of the neck, lifting them across the finishing line, it was Suarez. Terry Gibson Real Madrids 2-0 win on the final day of the season against Deportivo La Coruna meant that the gap at the top of the table ended as just one point, but Gibson thinks the best team have come out on top.We quickly forgot all the praise and adulation they were receiving from everyone when they were on that 39-game unbeaten run, he said. Luis Suarez scored a hat-trick at Granada as Barcelona won the La Liga title again They were coasting home and I think that was the problem. They didnt seem to be too fussed when they lost to Real Madrid, despite it being a Clasico, because the point gap was still significant, but then there were the defeats to Real Sociedad and Valencia and the panic button was pressed.I never had any doubt that they wouldnt win those five games, but I didnt think theyd win it in such style.I genuinely do believe that, apart from that run of four or five games, Barca have been clearly the best team in the league and I think its testament to Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid that theyve got close to such a good team.
